Hexagons and Flowers

February 28, 2014

I have seen many gorgeous examples of cards using the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die.  Most of the truly beautiful ones also use the Watercolour Wonder Designer Series Paper as well.  However, try as I might, I just couldn’t make it work.  So, I completely scrapped that idea and created my own version.

013I stamped the Hardwood Background stamp onto Crumb Cake card using Crumb Cake ink and sponged the edges using the same ink.  I cut Crumb Cake card using the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die and then sponged Crumb Cake ink over the whole die in a circular motion.  This kind of highlighted all the edges of those gorgeous shapes.  I also sponged the ink around the edges.  The two pieces of Crumb Cake are attached together and then attached to scored and folded Cherry Cobbler card.  I stamped the flowers from the Petite Petals stamp set onto Whisper White card using Cherry Cobbler ink and punched them out using the Petite Petals Punch (this is one of the best bundles I bought from the Occasions Catalogue). 014 I gave the flowers a little dimension and attached them to the card front using Glue Dots.  I stamped Birthday Wishes from the Bring on the Cake stamp set onto Whisper White card using Cherry Cobbler ink and cut the greeting using one of the Banner Framelit Dies.  I sponged the edges using Crumb Cake ink and attached the greeting to the card front.  Lastly I added large Basic Pearls to the centre of the flowers.  Inside the card I stamped a 3cm wide strip of Crumb Cake card using the Hardwood Background stamp and Crumb Cake ink.  I sponged the edges before attaching a narrow strip of Cherry Cobbler card punched using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  I attached this piece to the bottom of Whisper White card which has the edges sponged with Crumb Cake ink and then to the inside of the card. 015 I stamped and punched a flower as before and attached it over the border of the decorative edge.

Finally a card I was happy with.  What do you think?  Is this a card that you would like to reproduce?  If so, you can purchase all the supplies necessary at my online store.

Bye for now,

Kris

Edit: Just found out this fits the challenge at Moxie World – Happy for Hexagons challenge.
